Goin to Gorda
Lyrics
Chorus
Im goin' to Gorda, far away
I'm goin' to Gorda, there I'll play
The sky is blue, the sea is green
I'm goin' to Gorda in my dreams
I dream I row a little boat
My angel guide my boat afloat
She held a candle in the night
The angel water shining bright
Chorus
Refrain
Cyril gonna come and he shake my hand
Gonna keep me safe from the wild man
Goney gonna share me a little drink
The Gorda people treat you like home
I'm goin' I'm goin' I'm goin' I'm goin' I'm goin' I'm gonna go
I'm goin' I'm goin' I'm goin' I'm goin' I'm goin' I'm gonna go
Chorus
Don't need to work all day
And when you work your work is play
You live the life of ease
Layin' back on the beach in the breeze
Refrain
Chorus
